City Council Approves Loans for New Downtown Business

Let the Digging Begin Work began Monday on Belle Plaine’s 2013 street and utility improvement project, including at the 100 block of West Main Street, resulting in the closure of that street for an indefinite period of time. When finished, that stretch of road will remain the same width but much of the rest of West Main Street (between Willow and Buffalo streets) will be reduced by up to 20 feet to the city’s state-aid standard of 44 feet. The boulevards on both sides of the street will be widened accordingly. This year’s project also includes street reconstruction and utility improvements at Eagle Street between Park and West Main Street and the 100 block of North Buffalo Street. Chard Tiling and Excavating was awarded the contract for this year’s project with a low bid of $1,304,218. An assessment public hearing will be held this fall, shortly after the bulk of the project has been completed.

B.P. Police, Crime Stoppers Accepting Anonymous Tips

The Belle Plaine Police Department has joined with Crime Stoppers of Minnesota to increase the ways citizens can pass on information about crimes while remaining anonymous. People giving tips may be eligible to collect up to a $1,000 reward. The additional ways citizens can turn in tips through this partnership may save thousands of dollars of investigators’ time, speed of solving crimes and help bring comfort to the victims. Tips may be turned in at a toll-free phone number, using the Internet, through SMS text messaging from a cell phone or using a smart phone APP, all managed and maintained by Crime Stoppers of Minnesota. Through this partnership, the Belle Plaine Police Department will receive tips Crime Stoppers collects through its systems because citizens may be reluctant to get involved directly with the authorities but who still want to do the right thing. The Belle Plaine Police Department will have the ability to put a Crime Stoppers link on its Web site as an additional means

to anonymously collect tips and will be able to include Crime Stoppers contact information when discussing or publicizing cases and the need for information. People with knowledge of a crime or a fugitive can provide information to Crime Stoppers by calling (1-800-222-TIPS 8477), going online at its Web site -- www.crimestoppersmn. org -- by texting on a cell phone TIP674, plus the message then sending it to CRIMES (274637) or by adding the free APP submit a tip to a Smartphone. If the tip leads to an arrest or charging the tipster may receive a reward of up to $1,000 and still remain anonymous. Crime Stoppers of Minnesota is a non-profit organization separate and independent of law enforcement. It is funded by tax-deductible donations. It is governed by a volunteer board of directors and has been in Minnesota since 1979. Today, there are over 500 Crime Stoppers programs around the United States and another 700 in other countries that offer the same commitment to anonymity and a reward to help solve

by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine City Council Monday night unanimously approved the terms for a loan to Main Street Donuts and Deli from the city’s economic development authority’s (EDA) revolving loan fund program. Tim and Linda Heng of Main Street Donuts and Deli, who plan to open for business within the next several weeks at 108 West Main Street (the former Duets facility), applied for and will receive $21,600 for kitchen improvements related to the reopening of a business at that site. “The proposed project is consistent with the EDA’s revolving loan fund purpose statement to provide capacity and incentive to upgrade operating efficiency of businesses,” states a report from Municipal Development Group, which assisted owners Tim and Linda Heng with the application process for the loan. The report adds that the project also addresses the city’s goal to provide more eat-

ing establishments in the community. The loan is for a term of seven years at 1.25 percent interest, “contingent upon the execution of the loan agreement, promissory note and a second mortgage as collateral.” The Hengs also applied for and will receive a facade improvement loan from the city for new signage in the amount of $763.75. The Hengs will provide a 1:1 match, resulting in a forgivable loan of $763.75 to be paid to the contractor, Dahlen Sign Company. Under the city’s policy and loan agreement, the loan will be forgiven if the Hengs stay in business on that property for at least one year or transfer ownership of the business to another entity that maintains the business in the improved building for at least one year. Following staff’s report, the council approved the loans to the Hengs with no discussion. The Hengs recently purchased the former Duets building from

Rick and Mary Krant. They also operate Broadway Market in Jordan. Main Street Donuts and Deli will offer breakfast pastries, sandwiches, hamburgers, soups and more. Meanwhile, the council Monday also unanimously approved the terms of a forgivable facade improvement loan to Dr. Todd Meeker and Connie Meeker of Belle Plaine Chiropractic. The Meekers applied for $1,500 from the city’s facade improvement loan program to help finance signage at the their new building at 200 West Main Street downtown. In other business Monday night, the council called for a public hearing on a proposed ordinance amendment pertaining to projecting signage. On March 18, the council addressed at length an after-the-fact variance request by Canopy Group to be allowed to keep a twomonth-old projecting banner

State climatologist Greg Spoden said that while many Minnesotans have been waiting a long time for warm, dry weather, there’s a bright side to the gloomy conditions. “The long spell of cloudy, dreary and rainy weather will be worth it when we won’t be springing right into a serious drought situation in southern Minnesota,” he said.

Weldon said the flood stage at about 12 feet. for Jordan is 25 feet, and as of “I’m pretty optimistic we’re this week, the river there is only going to be okay,” Weldon said.

Snow Day Ethan Laing, 9, and his sister Vienne, 6, took advantage of sticky snow and mild temperatures to build a snow fort and snow men in their front yard on East Shea Street. The children enjoyed an unscheduled snow day Thursday (April 11) when several inches of the slippery white stuff kept school buses safely parked in the garage.

Flood Risk Low

Snow Not Stopping This Sale A half-foot or so of wet, sticky snow did not keep Cindy Kruschke from holding a garage sale at her home at 104 Oakwood Drive on Friday (April 12). She said her husband Dave told her if she’s going to go through all the trouble of setting up the sale, you might as well have it for two weekends, which will also include this week’s City-Wide Garage Sale that takes place Friday and Saturday.

Despite the snow, rain and recent ground thaw, Scott County Emergency Management Director Chris Weldon said that barring any widespread heavy rains along the Minnesota River Valley anytime soon, the risk for major spring flooding this spring is minimal. The cold nights have helped reduce the rapidity of moisture from snow melt and ground thaw entering the river, giving what water does make it in more time to flow downstream before more follows.

Winter Still Standing Tall The creator of this snowman on East Main Street had some fun with this year’s extended winter. Now that it’s past the middle of April, most people would like to see this symbol of winter gone sooner than later. But chances are he’ll be around (or recognizable) for at least another few days.

Rotary Breakfast Fund-raiser The Belle Plaine Rotary Club, with the help of local Boy Scouts Troop 324, held a pancake and sausage breakfast Sunday at the Belle Plaine Vets Club downtown. Profits from the event, which are still being calculated, will go to the Belle Plaine Food Shelf. Among the many Rotary Club members helping out (above photo) were Ashton Pankonin, Fred Keup, Tom Meger and Janel Schmidt. Pictured below being of service to customer Brett Kruschke are scouts Alexander Fedderson and Dan Cooper. The Belle Plaine Rotary Club has been a strong supporter of the Belle Plaine Food Shelf since its doors opened. Last February, the club donated over $11,000 in refrigerator and freezer equipment to the food shelf.

Wish Fulfilled Seven-year-old Morgan Sawyer of Belle Plaine was the guest of honor during a special gathering Monday at Applebee’s in Shakopee. Morgan has been battling several serious medical conditions throughout most of her life, including epilepsy and metabolic disorder, both of which are life-threatening. Her parents, Vincent and Heather Sawyer, recently sought out the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota on behalf of Morgan, who subsequently was granted the wish requested by her family. Morgan on Monday received an educational communications package, which includes an iPad and other educational devices and games. The Sawyers selected Applebee’s as the site for the presentation because “it’s their favorite restaurant.� Pictured in the front, from left, are nurse Ashley Hackett, Morgan and Julie Dover of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota. In the back are Morgan’s parents Heather and Vincent and little brother Gavin. The Make-A-Wish Foundation “is dedicated to granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.�

partments and their respective budgets, gave him the financial experience the city council believes will allow him to handle city finance. Hendel, 45, is optimistic, excited for the opportunity to serve his community in a new way. He’ll remain a member of the Cologne Fire Department. Just as he did as an inexperienced firefighter, Hendel plans to learn from those who’ve performed the job well. With the council’s approval, he’ll look to other area city administrators and managers as mentors. “I’m going to reach out,� Hendel said. I have a lot of experience, but I need somebody who’s going to help me use my experience in the right way.� Councilor Scott Williams is confident Hendel is the right person for the job despite his lack of public sector experience. Hendel has a big learning curve to tackle, Williams said, but he’s confident “he’ll overcome it. I know he will.� Mayor Matt Lein confirmed Hendel was the city council’s No. 2 choice when it looked to Brian Beeman as its next administrator last month. The council later rescinded its offer to Beeman after learning “unfavorable� information from performance reviews Beeman received from the Melrose City Council. Hendel has managed people before and led different departments working in concert toward a common goal. The biggest challenge Hendel faces, Lein said, is the public sector part of the job. confident Hendel is the right person for the job despite his lack of public sector experience. “He needs to learn what’s public and what’s not,� the mayor

Covenant Concerns

A group of Cologne residents, led by Julie Cink, asked the council for its support pushing a home builder, NovakFleck, to honor its covenants in a neighborhood northwest of Benton Lake. The city approved the development about a decade ago, before the housing market crashed. The residents are concerned the new houses NovakFleck is building in the neighborhood violates the covenants by lacking variety of architectural design. The council agreed to discuss the issue with its contracted community development planner, Dean Johnson, and city attorney at an upcoming meeting.

Glad Days

The council received a brief update on Glad Days, July 2627. Activities Friday evening will be moved to the city park near Fritz Field. The council later raised concerns about managing traffic and people in the area because the Cologne Hollanders are hosting a Legion baseball tournament at the ballpark the same weekend. In other action at its April 15 meeting, the Cologne City Council: n Paid bills totaling $55,000.59. n Approved liquor licenses for businesses current on property taxes. n Approved spending $150 to advertise the Cologne Community Center in the Hollanders’ baseball program.

Scott SWCD Conservation Day Postponed Until May 3 The Scott Soil and Water Conservation District Day, originally scheduled for April 19, has been rescheduled for May 3 due to the snow that still blankets the fairgrounds. Each year, the Scott SWCD holds its annual tree order pickup and sale in the spring. This year, the event has been expanded to include a number of fun and educational conservation-related activities for the general public, along with a sale of extra seedlings and native seed mixes. You and your family are invited to the third annual Scott SWCD Conservation Day at the Scott County Fairgrounds in St. Lawrence Township. It will take place from noon to 6 p.m. on Friday, April 19. Customers who pre-ordered seedlings and native seed mixes may pick up their orders anytime during this event, and a variety of extra seedlings will also be sold in smaller bundles throughout the day. In addition, there will be short demonstrations and presentations on composting, the secrets of planting wildflowers, the ease and color of rain gardens and environment-friendly lawn care repeated throughout the afternoon. Scott/Carver Master Gardeners from the University of Minnesota Extension Service will also be on hand to answer any tree or shrub questions. Guests will also be able to walk through

Each week, I try to read something that is a bit outside of my usual range of reading. The hope is to learn something new or find something that may be rather enjoyable but so far, unknown to me. It often pays off and in many cases, I choose to share what I learned with others. This week, I went a slightly different route. I watched a movie from our selection of DVDs here at the library. It is easy to dismiss a movie as uninteresting if you look at the jacket and recognize none of the names. I have done it. It is likely that you have also.

Hoping to reduce the amount of money it spends on unnecessarily treating clean water, the Green Isle City Council recently approved a new ordinance intended to prohibit residents from sending drinkable water for sewage treatment. The new ordinance the council unanimously approved April 9 requires property owners in Green Isle to allow the city to inspect their property at least once by Dec. 1 to make sure a sump pump is not sending clean water and storm to Arlington to be treated as if it is liquid sewage. The city pays Arlington to treat water at its sanitary sewage plant. Green Isle installed sewer lines to Arlington several years ago. But in the years since, the city is concerned water it can’t account for is infiltrating its sanitary sewer lines to Arlington. Councilors current and past have long been concerned about infiltration via residents using sump pumps to move excess storm water away from their houses and lawns through sanitary sewer lines. The new ordinance is aimed at making sure residents are not illegally hooking up a sump pump to sanitary sewer lines. The ordinance calls for a cityselected inspector to check properties by Dec. 1 and then perform spot checks as deemed necessary. Mayor Dale ZumBerge said the ordinance is

more focused on cooperation than reprimand. “We’re not out to catch anybody. We’re not out to catch or fine anybody. We want to give them every opportunity to get it right,” ZumBerge said. Councilor Mark Wentzlaff noted people might disconnect an improperly hooked up sump pump and then reinstall it illegally once an inspector leaves. “You won’t get away from that,” ZumBerge said. “That’s when you surprise them and come back a different day.” City Clerk Bert Panning asked about people who refuse to allow a city-approved inspector in the house. The ordinance includes a provision requiring property owners to permit a city-approved inspector access. Wentzlaff said people with nothing to hide have nothing to worry about. “We’ll take care of that when the time comes,” ZumBerge said.

2012 Audit: Good, Bad News

If the City of Green Isle was a corporation, some of its divisions would have shown a profit last year. Other finished in the red during 2012. Overall, the city took in more than it spent, but not by much. Green Isle’s auditing firm of Burkhardt & Burkhardt recently reported the city took in more

money than it spent providing city services during 2012. But, its enterprise funds finished in the red, in part because of unpaid bills for water, sewer and solid waste collections. The city took in $799,227 in taxes, assessments, licenses and permits, intergovernmental funds, charges for services fines and investments during 2012. The city spent $757,281 -- $41,956 less than it took in, during 2012. The city’s water fund finished 2012 $49,615 below breaking even while the sewer fund finished with a surplus of $51,777. The refuse fund finished last year with a surplus of $7,561. Overall, the three utility funds finished with a positive balance of $9,723. But that’s well below the positive balance -- $16,917 – the three funds enjoyed in 2011. At the council’s direction, the city plans to crack down on severe past-due bills to avoid the shortfall, “We have to,” ZumBerge said. At its April 9 meeting, the Green Isle City Council: n Paid bills totaling $27,785.21. n Granted a request from the fire department to close portions of Parnell and Railroad streets July 12-13 to celebrate the department’s 125th anniversary.

Dressen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Dressen of Arlington, became the bride of Glen P. Schostag, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Schostag of Belle Plaine.

Late Thursday night the Senate Education Finance committee passed the education finance omnibus bill. The bill invests a total of $15.6 billion, with $ 3 5 6 million in new spending and $150 million in property tax relief. “We think it’s time, since the funding mechanism has gotten out of whack, that we step in to fix it. We think this is the first step in doing that,� said Sen. Kevin Dahle. “We want to lessen the disparity. We want to take some of the burden off property taxpayers, and we want to make sure that even schools that can’t pass a levy are getting some dollars. I think those are some of the key things that are important in this bill and important to Minnesotans.� Dahle sponsored two key reforms in the omnibus bill – GRAD assessments and teacher testing. The legislation removes the high-stakes GRAD test and

replaces it with a suite of tests designed to diagnose and help students at an earlier age and also reforms the Minnesota Teacher Licensure Exam basic skills test to ensure high-quality teachers are not being let go. “Research continues to point us away from high-stakes testing and toward a multiple measure system. One single test is not an accurate measure of an individual, be it a teacher or a student. These reforms will keep great teachers in the classroom and improve student performance.� Other key measures of the omnibus finance bill include: – All-day kindergarten, $130 million. – Basic funding formula increase, $100 million – Early childhood education, $44 million. – Special education investment, $9 million. “With the targeted investments in education and the property tax relief for Minnesota families and businesses, this is a bill Minnesotans should be proud of. It aligns our entire education system, from pre-kindergarten to higher education, and will make Minnesota students college and career ready.�

from the working people who spend each day hoping to earn enough for bread and clothes and shelter for their children. The United States is a great country. Its greatness is in the fact that its people work with urgency to end hunger, housing inequalities, and the lack of medical care. The richest one percent are not the citizens that will prove we are a country with Christian values. The citizens in the 99 percent who work with as much cooperation as possible to provide the needs of everyone are the citizens who prove to the world we are a rich and blessed nation. Be careful listening to the politicians who yell the loudest. Practice the kindness and the humility of Pope Francis and like him always remember the poor. Then we will be the great nation we are destined to be. Larry Kiewel Belle Plaine

OLDEST RV DEALER IN THE WORLD!!

The swimming season unofficially opened in Belle Plaine that year on April 21 when two of our boys went down to the river to test the water and swam across. That early swimming record was expected to endure. The head of the local radio shop reported 25 radio sets in this community, half in town and half on farms. Some of the sets ranged up to $300 in price. Victor Kahle made his first try at professional baseball. He reported to the Mitchell, S.D., team in the Dakota League. After spending a half-year with his folks in Kentucky, Jack Carter returned here, saying he preferred this locality to Kentucky. Peter A. Solheid, well-known Union Hill farmer, died at age 76. Mrs. James B. Corcoran, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P.A. Colbert of Assumption, died at her home in Jessenland at the age of 33. Among those who came to attend the funeral of Mr. John Holste was William Salisbury of Minneapolis. It had been 15 years since he moved from the farm in Blakeley to the city. A number from the German Settlement went to Mora to attend the funeral of Mrs. Herman Winterfeldt. She was a sister of William Kruschke and Mrs. Henry Schulz. Mrs. Peterson, one of the pioneer settlers of the East Union community, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Oscar Burling, at the age of 80. The legislature reduced slightly the $17 average for auto licenses, but refused to issue the proposed $20,000,000 bond issue, so trunk highway improvements were due to curtailment.

Dear Editor, I closely watched the first days of the new Pope. The new Pope does not change my life but watching his humility as he takes office and begins his ministry help me to understand some things I have been puzzling. As I watched him decline the fancy robes and ornaments, and turn down the big apartment, I realized that a country is not rich depending on how rich its richest princes are. A country is rich depending on if its poorest people have enough to eat, are safe in their homes, and can get medical care when it is needed. The Republicans have spent a great deal of time and energy trying to convince us that letting the rich keep all their treasure will make us a rich country. It becomes clearer each day that the Republican call for an end to the Federal deficit spending is just the newest way for the rich to separate themselves

While it seems like we should be hearing about winter weather preparedness during this stretch of extremely cold and wet weather, this week is actually Severe Weather Awareness Week in Minnesota. For more than 25 years, Minnesota has conducted a Severe Weather Awareness Week in partnership with the National Weather Service and local governments. The information campaign is designed to teach and remind Minnesotans about weather hazards and provides resources to minimize the risks associated with severe weather. The main event of Severe Weather Awareness Week is the annual statewide tornado drills. The drills are scheduled for Thursday, April 18 at 1:45 p.m. and 6:55 p.m. At those times, sirens and NOAA Weather Radios are will sound in a simulated tornado warning. The first drill is intended for institutions and businesses, while the evening drill is intended for second shift workers and especially families. All of our schools will be practicing our tornado drill during the 1:45 p.m. drill. According to the National Weather Service, Minnesota experiences an average of 40 tornadoes per year. In 2012, 37 twisters touched down. A record was set in 2010 with 104 tornadoes across the state. Understanding this threat and knowing what to do when a tornado is approaching can save lives. Take advantage of Severe Weather Awareness Week to review your own and your family's emergency procedures and prepare for weather-related hazards. Each day of the week will focus on a different topic: Monday - Alerts and Warnings; Tuesday - Severe Weather, Lightning and Hail; Wednesday – Floods & Flash Floods; Thursday – Tornadoes; and Friday – Extreme Heat. For information about each of these areas, please check out more information at https://dps.mn.gov/divisions/hsem. Congratulations to our students who recently competed in the State SkillsUSA compettion with great success. The students competed along with fellow Carver-Scott students against students from across the state. Here is a list of those receiving awards for their accomplishments: Advertising Design - 3rd Place, Katelin Plekkenpol; Career Display - 2nd Place, April Johnson; Pin Design - 2nd Place, Katelin Plekkenpol & 3rd Place, Riley McCann; T-Shirt Design -1st Place, Riley McCann; and Job Interview - Honorable Mention, Katelin Plekkenpol & Riley McCann. Congratulations students on your great accomplishments! Oak Crest Elementary hosted the Section Speech meet this past Tuesday and after the final events were tallied, four Belle Plaine students will be advancing to the State Meet this Friday and Saturday at Blaine High School. Those qualifying for the State Meet are: Erin Winters (2nd) and Jake Hartmann (3rd) in Serious Prose; Alec Lorenz (3rd) in Storytelling; and Michell Farmer-Lies (3rd) in Discussion. Congratulations to all who participated in the Section Meet and best wishes to students advancing to the State Meet!

Council (continued from page 1)

at its hearing on May 20. *For the second time this year, the council tabled action on the adoption of an ordinance pertaining to accessory building and garage door heights. The first time came on Feb. 19 after the council could not come to a compromise on a proposal that would allow accessory buildings to be the same height as the primary structure on a property. Over a month later (March 25), a joint planning meeting was held between the council and planning and zoning commission, during which a The compromise Minnesotawas reached for a maximum height of 25 feet for accessory buildings and a maximum height of 12 feet for garage doors. The council was expected to officially approve the ordinance Monday night Display Ad but Council Network Member Gary Trost requested that the matter be tabled again Your newspaper because he did notparreceive inhas agreed to formation regarding the issue ticipate in the 2x2 that he was previously told he Display Network would get, Ad including what other program by running area cities’ policies are on acthese ads in the main cessory building and garage door heights. news section of your (notthat theinforma“Inewspaper was promised tion and I didsection not getofit,” Trost classified said. your newspaper).

Eventually, the rest of the council agreed and it will be back on the agenda in May. *Unanimously awarded the bid for the city’s 2013 seal coat project to Allied Blacktop Company for $77,579, well below the city engineer’s estimate of $90,080. The other two bids were from Pearson Brothers ($86,650) and Asphalt Surface Technologies ($106,118). *Unanimously awarded the bid for the 2013 streambank and stabilization project (phase 2) to low bidder Selly Excavating for $22,774. The engineer’s estimate was $29,994. The other six bids received ranged from Chard Tiling and Excavating ($23,442) to Blackstone Contractors ($39,613). The project is being conducted in conjunction with the Scott Soil and Water Conservation District, which has indicated it will contribute $11,387 toward the cost. The purpose of the project is to stop the scouring that is occurring directly to the south of the streambed stabilization project that placed a concrete blanket in the streambed. If the erosion problem is not stopped, it will eventually compromise the city’s sanitary sewer line that extends through the ravine, according to the staff report. *Unanimously approved a temporary 3.2 percent intoxicating liquor license for the Belle Plaine Softball Association for this year’s games and

tournaments at Prairie Park. The license will be in effect from May 1 to Sept. 1. *City Administrator David Murphy reported that the interior of the public library will be repainted and new carpet installed over the next two to three weeks. He added that the request for proposals for architectural services for the proposed expansion of the library will go out early next week. Murphy also reported that four individuals have expressed interest in becoming part of the committee to work for an archery range in the community. The city’s park board will address the proposal at its April 22 meeting. The next regular meeting of the Belle Plaine City Council is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday, May 6 in the City Hall building at 218 North Meridian Street downtown.

Scott County is hosting a presentation on its 10 year plan for the county’s transportation system tonight (Wednesday, April 17), 7-9 p.m., at the SCALE Regional Training Facility, 17706 Valley View Drive northwest of Jordan. The meeting is one of five on Scott County’s transportation improvement plan (TIP). The TIP includes roads, bridges, trails, transit facilities, and other safety enhancements the county may help fund and enact.

Only three residents spoke at Monday’s annual property valuation public hearing that was held prior to the city council meeting. All three individuals said they believe the valuations of their properties are excessive and will appeal them. Two written appeals were also received. Present at the meeting were Scott County assessors Carrie Borgheiinck and Chad Bohnsack, who will review all of the appeals and report back to the council with their findings on April 29.

sign in place at 100 East Main Street. Paul Borchert of Canopy Group, who was the only one to speak at last month’s public hearing, said the sign was installed “to better define what Canopy Group is,” and asked the council to grant a variance. The city’s planning and zoning commission, which also discussed the issue at length, had recommended denial of the variance, as did City Attorney Bob Vose, who told the council that the city ordinance does not allow projecting signs to advertise products. He added that this is a “use” rather than a “variance” request. But following a long discussion by the council, Mayor Mike Pingalore and council members Cary Coop and Gary Trost voted against ordering the removal of the sign at this time, while Paul Chard and Scott Schneider voted in favor of the denial, placing the issue in a limbo state. After further discussion, the council agreed to send the matter back to planning and zoning for more options, including possibly amending the city ordinance to allow advertising of products on such signs, or to prepare a resolution determining that the Canopy Group sign does not violate the product advertising portion of the city’s ordinance. The planning The commission has Minnesota since been reviewing projected sign ordinances in other cities and will hold a public hearing of its own on the issue on May 13. The council will take up the commission’s recommendation

Special thanks to Pastor Mark Johnson for his visits, prayers and for officiating at the service. Thank you to Pastor Frank Jones for his visits, prayers and his readings at the service. Thank you also to the Allina Hospice Services Team, Kolden Funeral Services, the women of St. John Lutheran Church who prepared and served a wonderful lunch following the service, Belle Plaine Police Officer Brian Vycital for his caring assistance, Terry Buesgens for keeping Gary’s John Deere active in the snow this winter and Gary’s sister Susie who was not only Gary’s sister, but also his friend and his nurse.

We will always remember all of you who selflessly reached out to us in our time of need and sorrow. Gary touched so many lives in so many beautiful and funny ways.

gers had already played seven games. “This has been a crazy spring. The kids have been great at staying focused and trying to get the most out of the time in the gym. We have tried to keep the practices shorter and sharper inside. We have tried to really place emphasis on the fundamentals inside and have mixed in a lot of live pitching and hitting in the cage to hopefully keep the guys ready. There is only so much you can do inside so we are not trying to keep the kids at practice forever. “We were fortunate to have the Florida trip in week two to break up the indoor practices, but having that week outside makes the last several weeks inside that much more frustrating,” Schultz continued. “The biggest issue has been trying to get all the levels (7, 8, C, B and varsity) enough practice time but that has been difficult to do without being able to go outside or use other gyms and the hallways for drills as much as in the past due to all the sports being inside.” Schultz said 2001, when he was a player for the Tigers, is the last year he recalls that anything like this occurred. “We had to cancel a lot of games due to a cold and rainy spring. We ended up only playing a seven-game conference season that year. We are hoping to avoid anything that extreme this year.” Softball coach Jeremy Kalal is in the same situation. “It’s been tough this spring, especially coming off of last year, when we had probably the best spring weather we’ll ever see. Now, we’re looking at the worst spring weather we’ll see for a long time. We’ve been fortunate to get a game in down in Blue Earth – we are the only conference team to play so far – and we also had two different days in the Eden Prairie dome, which has helped us prepare. “Everyone is in the same situation, and with our condensed schedule, when we finally get to play, it is going to come down to the team that can play the best all-around softball,” Kalal continued. “If we move to all doubleheaders, we have shown we can play great defense and score runs, so I like our chances. The girls have been doing a good job in the gym staying motivated and upbeat for the most part. It’s definitely not easy when you look at the forecast, but I’m confident we’ll be ready to go once we actually get started.” Belle Plaine track and field coaches Rich Foust (girls) and Adam Smith (boys) have had two opportunities to see their athletes in actual competition, but they would like to see a lot more before the big meets (true team and conference) come around. “Twice before (23 years coaching) we have shoveled off the track to get the first meet in, but during those years there were no setbacks,” Foust said. “Once

the track was cleared, it stayed cleared. We’ve had days in years past where it has snowed later in the season and been cold, but it was short-lived, the snow melts by the next day and it warms back up. “As far as motivation - we try to do some different things in practice (dodgeball, fruit game, team bonding), but as far as workouts and working on the field events, you can only do so much inside,” Foust continued. “So far, two of our meets have been postponed and we have no room for more makeups – anymore meet postponements and we will lose those. We really need these early-season meets to get a good look at everyone and to practice and perfect handoffs in the relays.” Things haven’t been any easier for the boys’ track team, which generally competes at the same time and facility as the girls. “As a coach I haven’t experienced this much bad weather and postponements,” Smith said. “Generally, if the track is clear, we will hold competitions. Unfortunately, the track was only clear for a short time, and has now been covered by snow again. “This past week we have been trying to keep things light at practice,” Smith continued. “We’ve played some team building games and some competitive games, along with mixing in hard workouts, so we don’t lose everything we’ve worked so hard for up to this point. We have also talked about how easy it is to lose focus when the weather seems to be working against us, and we are stuck inside. But by pushing ourselves and pushing our teammates during the workouts, we will be able to keep our eyes on the prize. The weather isn’t just poor for us, all the teams in the conference and state are going through the same thing. We have to take advantage of the workouts we do get and keep getting better.” 2013 BPHS Baseball Updated Schedule Apr. 18 vs. Sibley East April 20 Four-Team Tourney at Tiger Park Apr. 23 vs. St. Peter

Ryan Dungey Wins at Dome Spring Sports Teams Getting Benched by Mother Nature Ryan Dungey of Belle Plaine won AMA Supercross’ return to Minnesota Saturday night, beating Ryan Villopoto. It was Dungey’s second win of the season. Dungey, the Red Bull KTM rider, took the lead from Villopoto on the 16th lap in the 20-lap 450SX race in front of a crowd of 48,846 in the first event at the Metrodome since 2008. Villopoto’s five-race winning streak was ended at five. “Man, what a ride,” said Dungey, who finished second at the last Monster Energy Supercross race in Minneapolis. “Ryan [Villopoto] and I put on a hard charge and he kept me honest the whole way. It’s been a while since I’ve been on top of box, but, man, in front of all these fans it was amazing. We could hear them out there. It was pretty loud and I’ve nev-

er felt anything like it. This is amazing to win in front of the home crowd, and I never could have dreamed something like this.” 450SX Class Results Minneapolis (1) Ryan Dungey, Belle Plaine, Minn., KTM (2) Ryan Villopoto, Poulsbo, Wash., Kawasaki (3) Davi Millsaps, Murrieta, Calif., Suzuki (4) Justin Barcia, Ochlocknee, Ga., Honda (5) Chad Reed, Australia, Honda (6) Andrew Short, Smithville, Texas, KTM (7) Trey Canard, Shawnee, Okla., Honda (8) Josh Hill, Yoncalla, Ore., Suzuki (9) Justin Brayton, Fort Dodge,

by Dan Ruud Some sports were just meant to be played (and practiced) in the great outdoors, especially Minnesota’s spring sports, including baseball, softball, golf and track. It’s not uncommon for Mother Nature in early spring to be stubborn when it comes letting go with winter, which often forces spring sports schedules to play give and take with the weather. Seldom do spring sports schedules go unscathed, especially in April. But so far this year, it’s been a ridiculously one-sided fight being won by perhaps Minnesota’s slowest ever winter to spring transition. In fact, as of today (Wednesday), only three of Belle Plaine High School’s nearly two dozen scheduled varsity spring sports games and meets have been played. One of those played was the Minnesota River Conference Indoor Track and Field Meet in Mankato (key word indoor) on March 23. The first scheduled outdoor track meet (boys and girls) was held as scheduled on April 4 in Belle Plaine, but of the Tigers’ next three meets, two have been postponed and the other cancelled. As for golf, two of the Belle

Belle Plaine freshman Wally Schultz took a swing in the batting cage during practice Monday in the school’s north gym. Plaine boys’ first three meets have been postponed and the other cancelled. The girls’ first two meets have been postponed. “I have coached the golf teams now for three years,” said Jerald Stauffacher. “Last year we got spoiled because we were able to get on the course the first day of practice. My first year we had to wait until spring break. But this is just crazy. We

have a tournament this upcoming weekend but I don’t foresee us playing in that. The extended forecast is not much warmer then it is right now.” Tigers baseball coach Pat Schultz and his team are still in search of their first game. On April 14 last year, the Ti-

Tee Time for H.S. Golf Still Up in the Air by Dan Ruud There’s not many sports worst to be stuck indoors practicing for than golf – no bunkers, no greens, no fairways, no trees, no sky. Those are what the Belle Plaine High School boys’ and girls’ golf teams have been without since they began practicing for the 2013 season several weeks ago. Like many other spring sports teams across the state, the Belle Plaine boys’ and girls’ squads are late to start the season. Both teams were scheduled to open against Mankato East at Valley View Golf Course on April 11. The meet was postponed to a date to be determined. A conference girls’ seasonal meet at Le Sueur-Henderson this past Monday was also postponed, while the boys’ scheduled meet at Waseca (also this past Monday) was cancelled. Another girls’ seasonal conference meet is still on the slate but very much in doubt for this Friday and Saturday at Jordan. Next Monday’s scheduled MRC seasonal meet at Glencoe has also been postponed. The earliest the Belle Plaine boys can get the season started is next Tuesday in a seasonal conference meet at Timber Creek Golf Course in Watertown. And just who will be playing varsity when the season does get started is still not entirely

clear. “It’s been a tough year so far with not being able to get outside,” said Tigers boys’ and girls’ coach Jerald Stauffacher. “It makes it tough to figure out who can score and knows the game. We have been to the range a couple of times but only able to hit short irons. This snow is not helping things any. “Practicing inside for golf is limited – we have spent time working on putting and the rules but are ready to get outside,” Stauffacher continued. “Keeping the kids motivated is not a concern as they want to get out and play. My biggest fear is we have some players that are new to the game of golf and I want to be able to have them play a few practice rounds before they have to step in and play a varsity meet. We have 20 girls out for golf and probably eight to 10 of them will playoff for three spots.” “On the boys side, we have nine juniors and 19 total players, so we have many fighting for probably four spots. Plain and simple, we need to get outside and need some warm weather,” Stauffacher continued.

Girls’ Outlook

For the first time in a number of years, the Belle Plaine girls’ team will be without Becky Koepp, a four-time state qualifier, including last year when she

placed seventh in the Class 2A field of 88 golfers. She is continuing her golf career at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall this spring. The Tigers have three players returning from varsity last season – juniors Hannah Johnson and Lexi Stauffacher and eighth-grader Ireland Lambrecht. “The 20 girls we have out for golf this year is a huge jump from the seven we had out the last two years,” Stauffacher said. “Now we are waiting for some warm weather so we can get out on the course and practice. I think this group will be in the hunt to win the conference title. We have three solid players back and have good numbers to work with to find out that one more score we need to help us win.”

Boys’ Outlook

The Belle Plaine boys will also be without their top golfer from last season as section qualifier JP Bergs graduated. However, Stauffacher said a number of players with varsity experience are back. Among them are juniors Zander Stier, Dustin Leistiko, Sam Karl, Jake Hartmann, Ricky Fogarty, Jacob Giesen and Casey Ekstrom. “This bunch of boys, with some help from younger players, should make a strong push at finishing in the top four in the conference,” Stauffacher said.

With a prolonged winter as a backdrop, some members of the BPHS girls’ track and field team ran outdoors Monday. Pictured above are Kaisa Hallgren, left, and Danika Schroeder. Back in the gym (below), members of the boys’ track and field team performed an exercise that can be done just as effectively indoors as it can outdoors – stretching.

High Island Rodeo Draws Nice Crowds Dozens of contestants from the area and region gave it their all in a variety of events at the annual High Island Rodeo Friday and Saturday nights at High Island Arena near Henderson. Barrel races tested the speed of horses and the skill of riders.

Members of the Belle Plaine High School speech team bound for the state meet include (from left) Erin Winters, Jake Hartmann, Alec Lorenz and Mitchell Farmer-Lies. The state competition is Saturday in Blaine.

Belle Plaine Students Bound for State Speech Competition

Four Belle Plaine students earned berths in the state speech competition Saturday (April 20) in Blaine. At the sectional competition last Tuesday (April 9) at Oak Crest Elementary School, the four – Erin Winters, Jake Hartman, Alec Lorenz and Mitchell Farmer-Lies – advanced with top-three finishes in their respective categories.

Southern Valley Alliance Spring Fund-raiser Tops Last Year

A different venue didn’t change the good fortune the Southern Valley Alliance for Battered Women enjoyed during its annual benefit. The Belle Plaine-based alliance raised just over $85,000 - including supplemental funds from Thrivent Financial -- at its annual dinner and silent/live auction at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel. Over 180 people attended the benefit, said Mary Ann Bigaouette, the alliance’s executive director. A year ago at OK Corral, the

alliance raised about $83,000 for general operations related to helping SVABW assist victims of domestic abuse. Two donations of $25,000 each had the benefit off to a solid start. The live auction generated over $10,000 in donations. One of the highlights of the benefit was a basket created in memory of Gary Bigaouette, Mary Ann’s late husband. He passed away April 1. Mary Ann and Gary Bigaouette’s daughter, Tonia Siehndel, created the basket. It was filled

with symbols of items Gary cherished – a model John Deere tractor, Minnesota Twins tickets and a blanket, a fishing pole, tackle box and lures and an American flag – generated a $2,000 donations in memory of Gary Bigaouette. “He’d be very happy and very humbled,� Mary Ann said. The change of venue to the spacious grand ballroom Mystic Lake Casino Hotel was a popular move, Bigaouette said. The group plans to return to its for next year’s spring benefit.

MALIBU

Lunch Hour Crash Two Belle Plaine girls suffered minor injuries in a lunch-hour crash on South Chestnut Street last Wednesday. The girls were riding in a car heading south on Chestnut Street, just south of East Main Street, when a vehicle heading east came out of the alley on the 100 block of South Chestnut Street and hit the southbound car, said Belle Plaine Police Chief Tom Stolee. The man driving the east-bound vehicle, a small SUV, was not injured in the crash. The impact knocked a tire off the passenger car the girls were in. The man was cited for failing to yield the right of way as he came out of the alley, Stolee said.
